The CAAC serves as the liaison between the community member and IBM [for the IBM i platform]. This has been a very successful partnership over the years. In fact, many of the enhancements and changes in V6R1 came directly from requirements submitted by the CAAC from the COMMON community.
More information about the CAAC, and the application for consideration to join the CAAC, can be found at http://www.common.org/index.php/vol-groups/caac.html. This is a great way to get more involved with COMMON and help the IBM i community. If this partnership sounds like something you could contribute to, please download the application at the above website and email it to CAAC@common.org.
